In brief: Possibly

The fovea is the most delicate part of the eye.
90% of all vision fibers connect to this tiny area. There are new amazing surgeries to repair conditions like macular holes that once led to blindness, & treatments for wet macular degeneration that would affect the fovea. However, mechanical injury, solar, laser, or welding burns to the fovea would probably be beyond repair w/ current technology.

In brief: It's coming!

Macula translocation operations are available currently but stem cell procedures will be the ultimate cure for central retina and foveal diseases or scars.
In the future your own stem cell differentiated rods and cones will be grown in tissue culture and be injected into the area of scar or missing retina.
